What is loft? Baby don’t hurt me, don’t hurt me, no more… ;) October 26, 2019October 27, 2019 admin Fusion has great definition what is loft, so I will just quote it 🙂 : In this tutorial we will use:– extrusion– loft How to make it step by step in a simple example: I suggest to start from side view – it will be easier to control high and shape. Lets make some simple construction geometry – it will be reference to position our sections. Please create plane at angles using our three construction lines. On these three planes, please draw some closed geometry. I drew circle(1), elipse(2) and rectangular(3). Click on loft, select all profiles in order, then click ok. Looks awesome, isn’t? Time to make some more useful example: Maybe phone holder…? 😉 This phone holder starts from triangle bottom(1), through circle section(2) to rectangle support(3). Start from side view with 3 reference lines(1),(2),(3) for each part. (4) is for additional support. Take a look at example dimensions. Next step – click here(1) and create working planes.(2),(3),(4). Please start new sketch on bottom part. Project(1) line(2) from first sketch, draw a triangle, add midpoint constraint(3) and coincident constraint(4) here. Next sketch. Project line(1) from first sketch, draw a cirlce(2), add coincident constraints(3),(4). Last one – the same story, project(1), midpoint constraints (2)(3). Also please add two rectangles (1)(2) for additional supports. Ok, time to make a loft through our three profiles (1)(2)(3). Add extrusion(1) from this profile(2), set operation to joint(3). And another one on bottom. Almost ready, only two little supports needed.(1)(2) Using plane at angle(1), make work planes(2)(3)(4)(5) for reference. Create extrusion from object to object. Select profile(1), and objects(2),(3). Set operation as Join(4). The same on other side. We can add some chamfer(1) on that edges(2)(3). That how it should looks. Try to modify some dimensions from first sketch – it should be working fine in some range. For example 😉 That how it looks with Iphone SE.
